When the surface view app is enabled, users can view their documents as large scrollable PDF's. This app must be turned on in order to use any of the document tools such as highlights, pins, notes and redactions. This app can be turned on and off by a workspace admin.

When the surface view app is enabled documents will appear in the document view.

Note: I have also enabled the notes app and search app in the document view below.

It may not always be necessary or desirable to give user's a wide range of document tools. User's can view documents in your workspace without the surface view app enabled however functionality will be extremely limited. When a user opens a document, it will open as a standard PDF document.
